Crisp, elegantly sweet-savory. Baker’s chocolate, lemon blossom, fine musk, dried peach, almond in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweetly tart in structure; delicate, satiny mouthfeel. The richly drying finish consolidates to chocolate-toned stone fruit, with a hint of fine musk.
With its generally elongated beans and distinctive floral and crisp, often chocolaty cup, the Gesha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world’s most unique coffees. Acatenango is the name of a coffee-growing municipality as well as a famous volcano overlooking the Antigua Valley of Guatemala. This coffee was processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Black Coffee in Black Jar, a Taiwan-based nano-roaster and café, is named for both the Taiwanese colloquialism “black soy sauce in black jar,” indicating something is difficult to see through, and the literal black jar this company stores coffee in to protect it from UV light.

A deep, graceful Guatemala Gesha cup, with notes of dried stone fruit grounded by rich chocolate tones.
